Come Kharif season, a host of Siberian cranes come to Telukunchi in Srikakulam district, and begin breeding. Their coming heralds good times to the villagers. Sadly, the birds are neglected by the forest officials and government authorities. They die in dozens in case of a cyclone or storm. The villagers, who take care of these birds, are requesting the authorities to create facilities for their care, as it would also improve tourism.
